Gold at USD1038

Dollar kept on sinking to new lows. Thus, Gold are going up. More people are dumping the USD. Thus, now maybe a good time to start to buy into Asian equities especially China for the long term.

Now lets see whether my commodities related mutual funds can pare against my Asian/China related funds..

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Gold futures hit a new record high on Tuesday, lifted by weakness in the dollar after Australia hiked interest rates and after a report that Gulf-area oil producers, along with China, Russia, Japan and France, are planning to eventually end dollar-based oil pricing.

With the dollar under selling pressure, investors moved into dollar-denominated commodities, such as gold.

Gold for December delivery rose as high as $1,038.00 an ounce in electronic trade, topping the previous record of $1,033.90 in March 2008. It recently gained $16.30, or 1.6%, to $1,034.10 an ounce.

Pushing through a new high is "very bullish for gold," said Tom di Galoma, strategist at Guggenheim Securities.

The dollar index (DXY 76.27, -0.37, -0.49%), a measure of the greenback against a trade-weighted basket of currencies, fell to 76.330 from 76.668 in late trading Monday

    Will there be another commodity run that happened just before the collapse of the stock market?

    During that time, oil & gold price s kept on shooting up due the dollar weakness.

    Cycle repeats itself.

    Economy seems to be recovering judging by the lack of control in spending by Malaysian consumers.

    I made some money from buying gold one year ago. Bought my gold from Public Bank Gold Saving Account. I am sure this is almost the peak for gold and very hard to go up somemore... The most i give is another 10 to 20% upside from the current level.

    About the cycle, i really hope it will happen again. If it happens again then we will have chance to buy equity at a cheaper price! Lolx..
